Historical Society Announces Online Finding Aid For Judge McCauley Diaries, a 47-Year Chronicle of 19th Century Cecil County

News From the Historical Society of Cecil County

In the late 1980s, the Judge McCauley diaries were donated to the Society.  The 46 volumes, covering day by day activites in Cecil from 1851 to 1897, span an important period in the county’s history.  On those pages you will find Judge McCauley penned notes about the passage of life, his work as a surveyor and some major events in the nation.

As part of a pilot project to explore making Society resources and collections available to wider audiences, our volunteers are working on creating finding aids and digitizing some collections.  In this new online resource patrons will find an index to the diaries and abstracts.  If you find something of interest in the Judge’s notes from centuries ago, visit our research library and we’ll be please to retrieve these manuscripts to help you with your family or local history investigation.

  1. This is a great first step. Now, when are the diaries themselves going to be available on line? The pressure never stops, does it?! : )
